Bargains and a Black Moon

August 15, 2020 0 By Saranne Mallinson


I’m glad that the hot weather has gone and that we have finally had some rain. My herb garden is feeling sorry for itself but it will bounce back. I’ve had a stock take recently so have gone through and reduced a whopping 61 lines to make way for new stuff.

You can grab yourself a bargain here:

Rare Black Moon

The 19th August (at 0341 in Crawley) is a ‘Black Moon’, but what is it?
There is no single accepted definition of a Black Moon. The term has been commonly used to refer to any of the following phenomena associated with the New Moon:

Second New Moon in the same month: These Black Moons are the most common ones, and they occur about once every 29 months.

Third New Moon in a season of four New Moons: This is what we have on 19th August. These Black Moons are a little rarer, and occur about once every 33 months – depending on where you live in the world. We divide a year into four seasons – spring, summer, fall (autumn), and winter. Usually, each season has three months and three New Moons. When a season has four New Moons, the third New Moon is called a Black Moon. This is the exact counterpart to the original definition of a Blue Moon, except that Blue Moons are Full Moons.

This month’s Black Moon gives more power to our New Moon rituals, so do something special with your intentions!
